General Affidavit


State of Kentucky, County of Henderson:

In the matter of claim of Lemas Marshall, Co A 6 USC Cavy for increase, Act Feby 6, 1907, Cert. 91604.

On this 17 day of June 1907, personally appeared before me, a Notary Public in and for the aforesaid County, duly authorized to administer oaths, Lemas Marshall aged 63 years, a resident of Henderson, in the County of Henderson and State of Kentucky well known to me to be reputable and entitled to credit, and who, being duly sworn,, declares in relation to the aforesaid case as follows:

I can not give public record of my birth for the reason that there was none ---- at the time nor can I give Baptismal record as my family were Baptist and did not believe in Infant Baptism.  I was 31 years old when I joined the church neither can I give any family or plantation record of my birth for the reason that my old master Bennett Marshall is long since dead and left no issue and if he had a record I know nothing of it.  And none of his relations so far as I can learn, when I enlisted I gave my age at 21 as I had been told that I was.  I could have entered the army at 18 but my people told me I was 21.  And I here with submit my discharge as proof of my good faith and ask that it be returned to me at an early date.  I had a wife and one child when I enlisted.

His Post-office address is 461 Fagan St. Henderson Kentucky

In the matter of Pension Claim of Lymus Marshall comes the affidavit Hattie E. Denton a person of legal age who deposes and says that she is the daughter of Lymus Marshall and as such was called to his aid and attendance in September 1923 by reason of a decline in his health.  He has a growth between his shoulders on the back, had chronic Asthama and Bronchial trouble which to me seems to grow more severe with age.  We feel that it is absolutely unsafe for him to be alone at any time.
